Let me see if I understand this correctly. The Village of South Elgin in its infinite wisdom has decided that a person who has devoted most of her life to abandoned animals is now breaking the law. The great majority of the animals that she has been responsible for have been dumped on her front porch.
Unlike the village, she has seen these animals as salvageable. She has helped numerous animals and families. I suppose that if the animals would have been dumped at village hall, those in charge would simply let them go free or have them euthanized since shelters are full.
If this is the mindset of the politicians in charge, you are as untrustworthy as advertised. Did you ever hear of altruism, pay it forward or just plain empathy? The problem is not the fault of the animals, but you have chosen to punish them. Shame on you!
Carol Shultz is an asset to the community of South Elgin and I am proud to have such a compassionate friend.
